Hi everyone...my brother is getting married and their wedding dress is very unique...i would love to try to replicate this dress...but I am not sure how to do the "bunching" effect- im calling it this for lack of proper term lol... anyways I am thinking i would sort of gather my fondant in wide strips and lay it across the cake layering it as i go and adding edible pearls to the points that meet??? I would do this for the bottom tier and a scroll design on top. The cake it self only has to feed 100 so it wont be too big...any ideas would be greatly appreciated

Are you talking about "pick ups?"

Are you talking about the "billowing" technique? Like the second tier in this picture?

The thread below describes how one CC member did it. And there are lots of threads on this technique.
